HOW TO FLY A QUADCOPTER/DRONE FOR BEGINNERS



Sharing buttons:

hey guys this Carson Miller Tech here

back with another video and today in

this video I'm gonna be showing you

everything that you need to know about

becoming a drone pilot or a beginner in

flying a DJI drone this applies to any

DJI drones and probably applies to many

other brands of drones also but in my

video I'm gonna be flying a DJI phantom

3 standard so yeah let's get into the

video so the first thing that you're

obviously going to want to know how to

do first is turning on the drone and the

controller the way that I turn on my

drone is I turn on the controller first

and we'll start beeping I set that aside

powering on to turn on the drone make

sure any gimbal guards or tectors are

off and to power it on you press the

button once and then hold it for two

seconds and will power on make sure this

is on a flat make sure this is on a flat

and stable surface next you're gonna

want to go into your phone whatever

phone you're using I'm using a iPhone 6s

currently and you're going to want to

connect to your drones Wi-Fi I've

changed the name and password already so

mine shows up differently but for you it

should show up as a default at first the

very first time you fly it so after that

you're gonna want to launch your DJI app

and from here you'll be able to click on

this button here that says camera and

that takes you into your camera view so

the next thing that you're gonna want to

do is calibrate your drones compass in

order to do this you're gonna want to

click on the ready to go GPS and click

on tau

to start the calibration you click OK

and on the screen it will show you what

to do but right now I'm going to show

you how to calibrate your drone 360

after on your screen it's changed you

turn your drone is complete the next

thing that I personally like to do is to

calibrate the gimbal and to do that you

click up here to the three dots and you

go to where there's a line with the

camera click on that you click on gimbal

auto calibration okay you don't have to

do this step but in my opinion I always

do it after calibrating and compass

because it just helps it's not fully

done yet some may think that it's done

but you have to give it about thirty

seconds in order to complete so as you

can see right now it's calibrating and

it will come up and it says gimbal

calibrated the final thing before taking

off with your drone for the very first

time is to make sure your drone is in

beginner mode this is like completely up

to you if you actually want to do this

but for me this really helped for the

very first time that I flew my drone

because to learn the controls it takes a

little bit of time to learn so to turn

on beginner mode and to make sure you're

in the beginner mode click on the three

dots once again go up here to where the

drone icon is and you want to scroll

down to where it says beginner mode this

is typically turned on when you first

turn on the drone and fly it for the

very first time so if you're not getting

long distance and you're like what is

happening the reason why is this mode

right here is probably still on also if

you're wanting to get a

or flight altitude you'll want to change

this right here to 500 you'll also want

to make sure you return to home altitude

is that a good distance high up so then

it won't hit anything so in my case I'm

not going to put it into beginner mode

because I've already went through that

but if you are a beginner you're gonna

want to make sure is in this mode to

help you so now it's time to fly your

drone for the very first time one more

thing before you take off make sure that

your controller this switch right here

needs to be up make sure it's up not in

the center because that goes to manual

attitude mode so make sure you're up and

as you'll see it will show GPS and

you're gonna want to make sure that

you've got seven or more satellites

available so now for your very first

flight you can take off in two different

ways you can either click up here with

the takeoff icon and it will hover up at

about four feet or you can pull the

sticks into the center or out to the

sides this is the emergency shut off and

turn on the propellers like this you

don't want to do hitting them while

you're flying up in the sky because if

you do that your drone will come

hurtling down to the ground so now that

I've told you all that I'm just gonna

take off with this way even though I

usually take off by going to the center

I'm gonna take off this way so then you

guys can see this yourself so you click

this button and you swipe to take off

as you guys can see it's just hovering

up in place right now you shouldn't have

to worry about it moving around as it

should just stay in place

so the default controls for the

controller is the left stick controls

the up and down and turning left and

turning right of the drone and the right

stick controls forwards

backwards left and right

to go up you obviously just push the

stick up make sure nothing's above you

and the drone will start to take off as

you can see right here on the controller

on your phone this right here is your

height and this is the distance from

your controller so I'm at an altitude of

about 150 feet right now about 160 now

and if I go forward you can see that the

distance from the controller goes up

also so to take your very first shot as

in a picture or a video you're gonna

want to make sure you're in the mode

that you want typically when you turn on

the app it's in picture mode which looks

like this and if you want to shoot video

click that little button right there and

you'll see video so in order to take a

video for your very first time you're

going to want to click this little red

button right here and it will begin

recording pretty self-explanatory and

you can get your drone shot in my case

some cows

[Applause]

as you see as you can see they're very

interesting so when you want to end the

recording you click the red stop button

pretty self-explanatory and now you've

taken your very first shot you can find

the shot in this here that has your

recordings it shows it right here or if

you just open the app you can click on

this right here that's called editor

which shows all of your recordings so

now that I've showed you guys how to do

that now it's time to move on to a

little bit more advanced camera

technique which is using this knob right

here what this knob does is it aims up

your camera by pushing up and aims down

your camera by pulling down you can move

your camera while moving around look

down at a subject or if you're wanting a

really cool cinematic look then you can

go and while you're flying forwards push

up on the little knob and it aims up and

that's pretty much it in flying a DJI

drone it's really easy if you want to

get into more advanced modes you can

move this knob over here all the way

down that brings up an option on your

app to do all of these different things

point of interest waypoints Follow Me

mode home lock course lock and you can

also from this screen get to your

beginner mode that's new but if you'd

like to do that you can also do that so

now it's time to get your drone back

home you can do this one of two ways you

can either manually fly your drone back

or you can click this button right here

which is return to home to return to

home you slide you won't want to do this

if you didn't set your return to home

height if you didn't set a good return

to home height then you have a risk of

going and hitting things above you such

as

power line like right there but in my

case ice at the return to home altitude

really high up so we'll come back to

home and on your controller it will

start beeping and your phone will show

that it's returning to home makes it

super simple to land and if you'd like

to cancel this you can click the X

cancel it you can cancel that and then

yeah then you can land it another way is

if you manually brought it back home you

can go and click on this auto land or

you can do the going down manually do

not move the six to the center that is

not what you want to do because that

will shut off your drone but you can go

and click this auto land right here and

land as you can see it's landing it will

automatically land and hover over just a

little bit and land and there you go

you've now just landed your drone so

yeah guys that's pretty much it for this

video

I'm sorry it was shot like it seems like

it shot it pretty quickly and well truth

is I kind of did because I've got quite

a bit of homework that I need to do so

I'm gonna get to doing my homework I

hope you guys enjoyed this video and if

you want more videos about my drone or

more videos like this comment down below

and make sure like this video if you

liked it or dislike it if you did in

losers but yeah so anyways guys that's

pretty much it for this video I hope you

guys enjoyed it see you in the next

video peace

also if you guys were wondering this

entire video was shot on an iPhone 7

plus so if the video looks horrible then

that's why or if it looks good then

that's why also so yeah guys that's

pretty much it now peace
